In the first talk, Shafique Virani, a Harvard professor of Islamic Studies, urges us to confront ignorance with knowledge. Quoting a medieval Muslim scientist, he notes that he "who knows not and knows not that he knows not is a fool." But "he who knows not and knows that he knows not, is a seeker."
In the second TED Talk Dalia Mogahed reminds us that we are all rather similar when she asks "what do you see when you see me? A scholar? A mom. A sister?"
